What did the DNA test say?

A DNA test appeared to prove David was Theo's father, but after last night's episode, viewers aren't convinced.

Theo had a joint christening with Chas and Paddy's daughter, Eve, and Victoria's son, Harry.

I still think Jacob is Theo's dad.

David was concerned his parental responsibility hadn't come through, but managed to enjoy the day.

After the christening, Jacob and David took Theo home, where the letter David had been waiting for was sitting on the doormat.

Is David really the daddy?

Some viewers are convinced that scene could be a hint that David is not Theo's biological dad.

One wrote: "It's obvious that Jacob is the real father."

A second commented: "But is he?" in reference to the show's caption quoting David revealing he's officially Theo's dad.

A third said: "Jacob defo the real dad."

A fourth added: "It's probably wee Jakey's baby."

Viewers on Twitter also believe Jacob is Theo's dad.

The baby landed on David's doorstep on Christmas Day with a note from Maya, but no indication who the father was.

David and Jacob had a DNA test done to find out the truth.

Dr Liam Cavanagh did the test. David asked him to make sure the results said David was the father.

Although Liam refused, viewers can't help but wonder if he did switch up the results.

In fact, some believe Liam himself could be the father.
